One of the shyest attention hogs to ever do comedy, Ralph Barbosa’s disarming and laid-back style has made him a headliner across the country and the star of his first hour-long stand-up special, Ralph Barbosa: Cowabunga, on Netflix. The past year has been momentous for the 26-year-old. In August, Ralph recorded his first Netflix special, in January he made his debut on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and his Comedy Central Stand-up Featuring: Ralph Barbosa set topped 3 million views on YouTube. In November 2022, Ralph starred in the HBO Max comedy special, Entre Nos: The Winners 3, and earlier that year his Don’t Tell Comedy performance was released on YouTube and now has over 4.5 million views. In 2021, Ralph won the New York Latino Film Festival Stand-Up competition and in 2019 he won the Funniest Comic in Texas competition.
